"This volume will both solidify public mental health as a field of science and practice and become the primary source for information on its knowledge base." -- Raymond P. Lorion, PhD, Dean, College of Education, Towson University "In terms of summarizing and organizing the many impressive findings on our understanding of mental and behavioral disorder from a populational perspective, this is a tour de force." -- Erick Messias, MD, MPH, PhD, Medical Director, Walker Family Clinic, Department of Psychiatry, University of Arkansas for the Medical Sciences "In this short review, I can only briefly communicate the content of the many excellent chapters by choosing some examples to convey the scope of this volume... The authors deserve our appreciation for a masterful volume that will do much to advance understanding of mental health as an essential public health challenge." -- David Mechanic, Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare "The strengths of this text are extensive. The book never loses sight of prevention as the ultimate goal in public health and as the ideal future for the field. The cultural aspects that are so often neglected in the literature are comprehensively discussed in an opening chapter and referenced throughout. The epidemiologic models that frame each chapter are at the forefront of current research, particularly the use of the life-course approach. Finally, the sections and chapters are well coordinated, with little overlap or redundancy." -- American Journal of Epidemiology "[T]hose ... functioning in the realm of public health medicine will find the title of great usefulness." --Occupational Medicine
